I Can't Make You Love Me (Bon Iver Cover) Pretty Quiet Remix - Bonnie Raitt

If I was somewhat decent at playing piano my song of choice would be Justin Vernon of Bon Iver's cover "I Can't Make You Love Me". Not only does the piano sound heavenly, his rendition of it almost makes you love his version more. Truth be told you can't make anyone love you, but you'll fall in love with this cover. 

"tell me no lies, just hold me close, don't patronize"

Search Party - Sam Bruno

I wish life was this carefree and as spontaneous as this song.

"halfway up to space, lately i've been dreaming about the desert
we'll be riding through the thunder on a midnight train
and baby won't you say these are the best of our days"

Odds Are Good - Anoraak

"the grass is greener on the other side, let's dream a little on the other side"

Cracks (Black Butter VIP Mix) - Sam Sure

"thought you'd stayed, hoped you stayed
and now all my favorite tunes remind me of you
the ruins of our room, oh what did we do, what did we do"

Dreaming - Frost

If you've ever experienced a Coachella festival, then you'll know exactly what I am talking about with this one. One of the stages is called, the Yuma Tent serving only house and techno music up the wahzoo. Giving you this impression that you're in an underground club where the outside world doesn't exist. You walk in, see that everyone is in this constant rhythm and you can't help but close your eyes and join. "Dreaming" by Australian producer, Frost instantly takes me right back to Yuma where just for that moment, dreams feel real.

"i'm just stuck here in a dream
i'm at the bottom of the sea
but i don't know if i make it back home tonight"

Tide Teeth - Night Beds

"my eyes always wander when you dance around your parlor
these lines hold no promise"

Swimming Pool - Yuma X

"i dream of you, i breathe the same as you
but do i swim with you, do i dream the same dreams you do
i've been thinking about you"

The Art Of Escape (Tora Remix) - Hein Cooper

30 seconds deep into this remix and Chet Faker popped in my head instantly. Funny thing not only does this remix give me Faker feels, but Hein Cooper and Tora are both natives of Australia only adding to the fact that Australia is KILLING IT right now. They always have been but the talent streaming from the land down under is just blowing my mind, someone please get me a one way ticket there (and a job) and I will love you endlessly. Anyway aside from my life struggles, a job well done to Tora for elevating this track, press play now.

"choking on electric chords, while you act like you know, 
everything about pleasure and pain"

Imposter Ft. Mark Johns - Bearson

"it seems i have found something i wasn't looking for
guess i could come around and i never thought about wanting more"

Haunted By You - Future Islands

I know this all too well. 

"feels like i'm holding you down, but you won't leave me alone
and you're holding me now, but i'm so far away from you
there's no home, no home like the one i found in you 
every song I sing it brings me back to you, cause I am haunted by you"

goodnight dreamers.
